Camp Oljato waterfront, sailboats, lake

Why is Camp Oljato right for your troop?


We offer a diverse Program with particular strength in aquatics.  Huntington Lake is very deep so, despite the drought, our aquatics program happens rain or shine!


We select our staff for their commitment to Scouting ideals and the Scouting Program. All staff are trained.


Camp Oljato is conveniently located for most Californians, just 5-6 hours from the Bay Area, Sacramento, and Los Angeles. Buses can be coordinated between troops for drop off and pick up or troops can carpool.

Investment in Facilities:

Over the last 6 years, Pacific Skyline Council has invested heavily in Camp Oljato’s facilities and programs. While there is still work to be done, Camp Oljato was recognized by National in 2014 and 2015 as the most improved camp in the area for program and facilities. We had the additional distinction of doing so in two years of extreme drought.
